While Vincent is in The Hague, Netherlands studying art, he is 33 years old when he creates this first landscape of a garden in oil on canvas in the spring of 1883. He paints Hyacinths in production with their rectangular plots of pink, blue, yellow and red skewed by his chosen perspective.  He is learning to create distance with line in one of his lighter palette works from his early years in Holland.
